The CSI sawmill commercial unit has been operating at Glen Innes Correctional
Centre in the Northern Tablelands for over 30 years. It recently received a $4.4
million upgrade to improve its already impressive log sawing capabilities and
increase the recovery rate for log processing by an additional 15%. This has
increased capacity to be able to process over 400 cubic metres of sawn timber
per day. New downstream equipment has been commissioned to produce dried and
dressed timber in a cost effective way. In addition to processed timber, the
facility at Glen Innes provides pine bark, ground timber and sawdust.

PLANT AND FACILITIES:
Whole Tree Utilisation
We have a strong focus on whole tree utilisation. From the bark on the
outside of the tree to the sawdust after milling, everything is processed into a
range of value-added products.
The Control Room
An operator in the control room monitors production. Utilising state-of-the-art sawmilling technology enables cost effective and quality outcomes in timber processing for our clients.
Sawmill Optimising Technology
Our log optimising system captures data about the shape of a log, then analyses
the data to determine the best solution for processing the log
Timber Drying Capacity
CSI has installed a high temperature kiln in the dry product shed capable of
drying 50 cubic metres of timber per day.
Our emphasis is on providing a high grade, finished timber product. Inmate
